    Recommend me a replacement for Convoy L6

    Wow... that was it and it was less than half a turn loose too. Guess I'll put some thread locker on there. See a few things that pique my interest at Lumencraft :) and the L7 looks good too (shows available on AliExpress).... decisions decisions decisions....

    Recommend me a replacement for Convoy L6

    My Convoy L6 (purchased in 2017), I turned it on, it flashed for about 1/4 second and now it's just dead. This is the first and only flashlight I've ever used on a daily basis. I used it at night to illuminate the entire property while investigating odd noises, in my room on low on top of a...

    I need a light for working nights

    Streamlight or Surefire if you have the $$$ Might also look at Armytek offerings, something like the Partner C2 Pro v3 with either XP-L or XHP35 emitter. OR some of the latest 26650 based lights like the Fenix PD40R or Olight R50 Seeker Pro (with Law Enforcement Kit). Both use XHP70...

    Self defense light for daughter traveling abroad

    Strobe can be much more effective, but it depends on the strobes output mode & rate of strobe. Some lights have a low lumen strobe mode which will do no good in daylight, others like my Nitecore SRT-7 with its fast strobe may be to fast to bother some people (like me) beyond just the high lumen...

    Self defense light for daughter traveling abroad

    Nitecore EA81 - uses 8xAA batteries so no flight restrictions for Lithium Ions, bright enough (2000+ lumens) to temporarily blind someone even in daylight, big enough & heavy enough to use as a club if all else fails. Also has strobe, sos, & beacon modes. Try 2000 lumens to the eyeballs, even...

    Recommend me a light for EDC / Weapon mount under $150

    Well, since no more viable options came up, I ordered the Dobermann Pro in White & should be here in just a few days. I like that the DP is almost an inch shorter and just over 2 ounces lighter than my SRT7, and I got it with express shipping for $75. I might still get that Zebralight later...

    Help a noob choose flashlight!

    Light bouncing back from 2500 lumens can be blindingly bright to the user at close distances, while 800 lumens from a decent flood will light up everything 30 - 50 feet in front of you almost like early sunrise daylight. You might check out the Klarus RS18, or even the Klarus Mi7. Mi7 is super...

    Recommend me a light for EDC / Weapon mount under $150

    Hm :sigh: I've been reading on some of the shooting boards & they say Zebralight is fine for small caliber weapons, but a poor choice for anything with a decent amount of recoil like a large magnum caliber handgun, or my .308 AR10 build. So, looks like the Dobermann Pro is back at the top of...

    And then Zebralight goes & announces this beastie.... SC600Fd Mk III Plus XHP50 Floody Neutral White (5000K) 93 - 95 CRI, and should be available right around the time I have the $$$ to purchase :thumbsup: But I see no mention yet of range & only compatible with flat top unprotected...

    Recommend me a light for EDC / Weapon mount under $150

    I don't pocket carry, I use a flashlight holster, I also have a Nitecore SRT7 which has a 40mm head & it's pretty nice & the head size doesn't bother me, but the weight sure does.... 6.1 ounces without battery :( @ 2 ounces lighter & 34mm head diameter the Dobermann seems like a pretty good...

    Recommend me a light for EDC / Weapon mount under $150

    Armytek seems more like what I'm looking for, but not the Partner Pro, I like the Dobermann Pro in white much better, especially if I cannot have beacon or SOS modes :( but it does have lowest low output at 0.2 lumen :) DX30LC2 has a quite fast beacon mode at less than a second between...

    Recommend me a light for EDC / Weapon mount under $150

    No Beacon or SOS on the Klarus lights, but the SC63 looks interesting, though it only supports unprotected 18650's :( Kind of also looking at ThruNite TN12 (2016) XP-L v6 Max, EagleTac DX30LC2, and EagleTac T25C2: No beacon or SOS on the TN12 but great price & 0.4 lumen firefly is nice...

    FABULAS BICYCLE LIGHTS????

    I've been looking for a few months, & so far it seems that most bike lights are made for off-road biking. You can angle the others towards the ground more, but then you're sacrificing distance illumination... Some have a plastic piece on top of the light that extends up to 3/4" past the lens...

    1.125" DIAMETER 2HOUR TORCH??

    Any add-on bicycle light is going to need an initial adjustment to minimize glare to oncoming traffic. As for Ixon waterproof? I previously touched on that... if there's any water resistance rating for the IQ lights, I'm not finding it. I'm certain they have at least average water resistance...

    1.125" DIAMETER 2HOUR TORCH??

    The two I mentioned previously are both bicycle lights, just like the Ixon IQ Fenix BT-20 bike light Fenix BC-30 bike light Both the BT20 & BC30 use the same beam profile as shown below but to keep out of opposing lane eyes, the lights have to be properly setup on the bike. Angled up to much...
